Product Description

Fugees ~ Score


Their remake of "Killing Me Softly" was the hit, but that's only the beginning of the story. A hip-hop trio whose talents reach out into the world of the pop song (Wyclef Jean is a fine guitar player, and Lauryn Hill's a heck of a singer), the Fugees are also all distinctive, inventive rappers--you find yourself waiting for each of them to take the next verse in turn. The beats are the familiar crossed-armed boom-bip, but the group's understated grooves and subtle effects lie low in the mix. Aside from two kicky covers of classics (the other is Marley's "No Woman, No Cry"), The Score's focus is on the stars' rhyming with the free-form grace of performance poets and showing that they've thought deeply about the issues they raise. --Douglas Wolk

This group is one of the few new age rappers of the many rappers of the day who weas good as a trio.They had a unique syle that hadn't been around at the time and i feel probably won't again. I hope these superstars will forever be in the rap/r&b hits for time indefinite. There big hit song "Killing me softly" will forever be a phenomonal hit. I hope for the success of wycleff jean he will always be remembered for theses people.

With four massive hit singles and 17 million copies shifted worldwide, the Fugees did, indeed, score big time in 1996 with "The Score." Never before had a rap act ever being so highly praised whilst managing to sell so many records. After 1994's "Blunted On Reality" passed by almost unnoticed, the Fugees pulled themselves together, seemingly matured by ten years and really knuckled down throughout 1995 - the result of which was The Score. Displaying a youthful exuberance fuelled with a wise-beyond-their-years knowledge of urban society, Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill and Prakazrel "Pras" smashed their way into the public conscious and firmly established themselves as one of the most talented and popular Hip-Hop acts of all time. They achieved this all within the space of two years and with one album which would sadly be their last...
Inflated egos and a desire to prove their impeccable solo talents (along with scraps within the group) resulted in the demised of one of the most lauded trios ever. What is left is a legacy which we can only hope will be resurrected someday - although with Lauryn (or Ms. Hill as she now prefers to be called) currently battling serious personal demons, the future doesn't look good (I hope that genius brings out another solo album - surely can't be as good as "The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill" though...can it?!). Success, fame and power tore them apart and this album is the only real thing we have left to remember them by.
Adopting the alias "Refugee Camp," the Fugees brought something fresh to the scene in the mid-90's. Their fusion of rap and pop was exciting and very ground-breaking. It sounds not so today, but eight years ago it definitely was - before everyone was ripping it off.

In 1996, hip hop was a different place, although a few years from becoming the wack music it is now. Pac and Biggie were still alive, Jay-Z was getting started, Nas reigned supreme, and you had the Fugees, a group who were SO momumental together that their presence was always something to behold. This album, their second, is BRILLIANT. They released hit songs in 96 from this album, and they did what most other artists CAN'T do: they TOPPED their first album, and they did it with supreme excellence. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: Too many to mention here, but there is NO filler.
Production: Thumbs up, Wyclef earned his bones with the beats, and so did Pras, Lauryn, and Diamond D.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs Up.
Originality: Thumbs up, almost like A Tribe Called Quest in a way.
The Last Word: In today's hip hop, we could certainly use a group like The Fugees. But, I'm afraid it won't happen again, but you never know(Mase is returning)!!! But with this album, The Fugees collectively were on top of their game, as they really brought out the best in each other. Classic album??? Definitely. Another strong recommendation for this album. You will enjoy this.

"The Score" es uno de esos discos que todos los fans del Hip-Hop deberian tener, uno de esos discos que solo aparecen muy de vez en cuando. "The Score" (segundo y último album de los Fugees) pone de acuerdo tanto a entendidos del género como a amantes de la música en general sin especial predilección por el Hip-Hop.
¿Cómo se consigue esto? Pues innovado en las bases, utilizando los "samples" de una forma inteligente (y no como única herramienta de producción..Murder INC daos por aludidos con esto) y por supuesto contando con la participación de tres buenos MC's que escupan algunas de las mejores rimas que he oido en Hip-Hop.
Asi es como se consigue este disco que contiene clásicos del género como "Ready Or Not" y "Fu-gee-la". En este mundillo del Hip-Hop donde una canción de hace 3 años ya se considera "Old School", "The Score" sigue sonando fresco, como si hubiera salido hace un par de meses."No Woman No Cry" y "Killing Me Softly" son ejemplos de como se debe reversionar los clásicos. En "Manifest", Lauryn Hill, nos regala uno de los mejores raps que he oido en mucho, mucho tiempo.
Desde el éxito de los Fugees, varios grupos han intentado imitar su fórmula (City High, Black Eyed Peas..) pero no se han dado cuenta que la clave de dicho éxito fue la unión de tres personas con tantísimo talento como son Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean y Pras. Un extraño fenómeno que puede que no se vuelva a producir.
